EU-project 'Victims of road traffic offences'

Would you like to know what your rights are as a victim of road traffic offences or as a relative? The EU-project ‘Victims of road traffic offences’ will help you out with this. Your rights and those of your relatives are written down in the European directive 2012/29. Through digital storytelling and images we would like to explain which information or support you can have after being victimised by a road traffic offence.

In this project we would also like to develop more information for police, justice and social services about the possibilities of communication between offenders and victims. Furthermore, we will work on improving the cooperation between different professionals (such as police, justice, victim support, medical sector, self-help groups of victim volunteers, …). By spreading good practices from different European countries, we would like to inspire others to work better together.

The project focuses on three main topics: 

  • information and support, 
  • restorative justice for people involved in road traffic offences and 
  • interdisciplinary cooperation on policy level. 

The outputs will be in English because of the use of good practices from different European countries. Rondpunt, vzw Moderator and LINC institute of KU Leuven will work together in this project. Our European associate partners are Victim Support EuropeEuropean Federation of Road Traffic Victims and European Forum for Restorative Justice.

This project is supported by the Justice Programme of the European Union. Would you like to know more about the project? Contact joke.castelein@rondpunt.be
